WOW!!! Just WOW!!!
What a change one day can make......
Zach had an amazing day (well after the test). Therapy went super good!!! I can't even put it all into words -- only WOW!!! We were at therapy for an hour and a half, right from there we had to get Zoe to dance.
ST (1/2 hour) - he was all over the place, a wild man, sounds were flying out of his mouth, for the first time ever he took a cow (puzzle piece) and walked it around the room (like the cow was walking) and he was just babbling away - WOW!!
OT (full hour) Zach was still a little wild man, he accomplished so much - the biggest thing for him was the swing (it is a fabric swing that he gets wrapped into - like he is back in the womb) for the first time EVER he wanted more, more, more (http://www.lifeprint.com/asl101/pages-signs/m/more.htm) - WOW!!
Then came dance, I've never seen Zach like this - EVER - he was extremely social, not just with the few Mom's he is comfortable with, but every single person in the waiting room (which was more then normal today) - he kept throwing a little pom-pom ball at everyone and giggling -WOW!!!
My son was AMAZING today - such a wonderful change is beginning to occur!
OH and did I mention - another word -------- "MORE", before he could sign it and kind-of, sometimes get "moe" out of his mouth but today we got a full out "more" - you have to listen really closely to him say it because the ending doesn't come out too clearly. To help you understand how he sounds - If you've ever heard a deaf person talk - that is exactly how it came out - think, Marlee Matlin. Now hopefully he will start to say it on his own, not just being a parrot. He didn't say it on his own but he was able to mimic Ms. Kristin and myself more then just his normal mimic of "moe" WOW!!!! WOW!!!! WOW!!!!
WOW ---- "Buh-Bye"
